Are the LAP and the ADP the same?
No, the ADP is the State Bar Court's Alternative Discipline Program for attorneys with substance abuse or mental health issues.
The LAP is for law students, bar applicants, and attorneys with substance abuse or mental health issues, regardless of whether they have past or pending disciplinary matters.
The ADP is only for attorneys who have disciplinary matters currently pending in State Bar Court. In order to be eligible for the ADP, attorneys must be enrolled in the LAP. The State Bar Court has more information about ADP.
